Consider the following:

Assuming that the following line of code has already occured in a scriptlet in a JSP page, which of the given JSTL code snippet will output the right string in the resulting HTML so that the message in 'htmltext' is displayed in HEAD1 style on the browser?

request.setAttribute("htmltext", "<h1>This is heading</h1>");

Given answers:
1) <c ut value="${htmltext}" escapeXml='false' />
2) ${htmltext}

IMO, answer 2 is incorrect since it is actually an EL expression.
Please confirm.

And the first one doesn't give a value!!!
Feel answer 2) is correct ${"htmltext"}- can't EL be used in conjunction with JSTL ?
